Zainab's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy more thread and new embroidery tools.
Zainab is a 58-year-old, married woman living in Zarqa, Jordan. Her husband is a driver. Besides the fact that living costs in Jordan have increased given the demand driven by Syrian refugees, it was hard for Zainab to find a job. So she has been helping her husband in paying their household expenses for one year by selling traditional clothes that she sews at home. These clothes are called “abayas,” after doing some embroidery on them. As her business was profitable, she is now seeking to expand it by purchasing more raw materials for sewing embroidery. But she doesn't have enough money to do so. For that, she has applied for this loan.
